Good morning all.
I need to replace my engine mounts and I’m looking to go down the semi solid route.
Can anyone recommend the best place to buy from in the uk (and the best prices if possible). Laughing

Hi Jimmy , welcome to the forum. the options for me would be

Rennline adjustable semi solids, I used these on my gen 1 and was happy on the yellow bush which is the softest. mininal NVH

RSS semi solid engine mounts ,I have these on my gen2 and IMO they are perfect with minimal NVH.

Function first semi semi solid engine mounts , I fitted these to my gen2 and removed them very quickly as too much NVH

Porsche 993RS OE engine mounts , not tried but hear excellent things about these fitted to the 997 with longer bolts.

WEVO not tested no info.

best do a bit of research decide which you want then look for the best price , should you go to Design911 forum members get a 5% discount. Thumb

Hi Jimmy,
+1 for the RSS, I fitted these to my Gen 1 over a year ago. I'd say one of the best and easiest mods I've ever done, gear shift feels a lot more positive and the car just feels tighter. Got mine from D911 with discount.
I also got the gearbox mount insert at the same time but not got round to fitting yet (job for this winter with a few more mods), guess all the play was in the old original engine mounts.
cheers
Tony.

I got the RSS from Design911, and I'd recommend them - tightens things up nicely.

Another vote for the RSS mounts from me. An added bonus I found was the engine sounded more sporty! Guess its transmitting more noise into the cabin but it sounded miles better than before.

I fitted the RSS a coupe of years ago, and can only echo what others have said. A great mod and makes the car feel much less wayward at the back end.

Do you have a link to these RSS mounts, just been on their site and can see various bushes both standard and modified but can’t see the RSS Jobbies ?

Thanks,

first question what is the car used for?

mostly track then go for RSS or torque solutions.

go for the 993 RS ones if more of a road as they are not as brutal as the pure semi solid ones like RSS and bit more rubber in them. I put them in my 997 C2s and love them and no real extra NVH. back end tied in loads more and power goes down better than tired old oem mounts.

i have Torque solutions on my old 996 GT3 mk2 and they can make things harsher on the road and a lot more engine noise and vibration.

speak to Matt at Type 911 near Beckenham as he is the main man for the best price and the kit.

link here and I paid 125 cash collected.

also on design 911 for same kit:

The same 964 RS ones that D911 sell are £80 shipped (inc import duty) from rockauto.com but you will need to buy 2 longer bolts to mount them and 4 washers..

Im pretty sure you can reuse the 4 small bolts/washers that hold the mount to the body, its just the long bolts (and large penny washers) that secure the mounts to the crossmember that need to be sourced Question

Thanks for all the advice guys.
The car is almost solely used on the road so I suppose the 993 option would probably be my best bet. I do like the RSS mounts though and I assume they would last longer than the 993 option but I don’t want too much extra noise or vibration.

Jimmy , I use my car for fast road with RSS and no issues at all with NVH ,ideally you would get to a meet and try cars with both RSS and 993rs ,I must admit had I not been happy with the RSS my next option was going to be the 993RS its important to note you will need to do a good few hundred miles for them to bed in and settle so dont be Surprised Surprised Wall Wall Finger Finger Duh Duh when you first fit them and drive the car , I think most of us when first fitting semi solids were OMG what have I done Grin but it soon settles nicely Thumb

Do not install the RS mounts without fitting full kit!!

If you dont use the dished washers along with everything else the rubber bushes will pull through and the engine will will drop , and all sorts of serious problems will result, please use all the parts that Porsche say!!!!

Jimmy just ring up Matt at type 911 and he will sort it. he is a top bloke.

I priced all the options up including looking at importing stuff plus design 911 but type 911 works out simpler and cheaper.

as I said I paid 125 cash as was in the area and it came with all the fittings.

if you buy on line you pay VAT and delivery.

are the RSS mounts worth the extra 250/275? they are best part of 400 pounds after VAT and delivery. not sure they are. sometimes you find them for sale on here used or on ebay,

The RSS are expensive , I actually wanted a set of lightly used as they would have been already broken in and settled , I was lucky to find a set from a member that had only done a few K miles and as soon as they were fitted it felt right . Thumb

I am also +1 for the RSS mounts which i have had on my car for a couple of years now and they make a noticeable improvements and once they are bedded in you don't really feel or notice any more NVH than the standard ones.

like Phil says if you don't mind waiting you might find a second hand set, but if you do go down this route you might want to also watch the US forums such as Rennlist or 6speedonline as the guys over there tend to mod more and also sell on parts, especially as they originally came from the US. Dont also forget that Black Friday is coming up and RSS and D911 normally have an offer on as well so it might be worth a watch.

Just bought the RS kit from type911 for £160 delivered

Anyone know of a writeup before I start? I have seen one for the 993 so have a reasonable idea...
